Every week I'll share a throwback to yesteryear about the Renegades on a Thursday, it could be a fact, a small piece about a Renegade character, the past or general information. Hopefully I can find something every Thursday! To start with here's a small image Heavy or jazz may/may not remember:
This is a very, very early map I created for a message board where the Renegades were formed, Civil War. Back in the day it was a normal Transformers board, but over time (Much like here) the banter between members was high bonding members together. A thread for Decepticon fans (Decepticons Forever!) was made, lots of banter, I think I made one in return called "Autobots Unite!" or something like that. Unfortunately the admin at the time wanted to move the board, but not to another service provider, that would've been fine, but still to a ProBoard like ourselves. The board was already a ProBoard and we were being moved for the sake of the admin not knowing how to change the look of the board. Most of us were against the move. The however much later was when things really changed.
Overnight, the admin just deleted everything, all the threads, content and banner that had built up (For at least a year I reckon), thus pissing off everyone in the process, not a good way to convince everyone to move. It just enraged everyone and not many moved with the new ProBoard, those that did didn't stay with it. Thus on the old board a rebellion against the then admin "Optimus Prime" started in a thread, we would not move. It was in that thread Heavy proclaimed something about "Renegade Autobots" as we were rebelling against the "Autobot leader" - the owner, "Optimus Prime". The rest you should know, an existing member took over and redeveloped the forum into a role-playing forum where Heavy, myself and Jazz were privileged enough to create the Renegades, a third alternative faction that took on both sides.
The above map was one of the earliest things I made for the Renegades, I'm assuming the initials are:
ww - ?
SB - ?
IC - Iacon
Ply - Polyhex?
DM - Darkmount?
CC _ Captial City? (Though give if IC is Iacon this could be wrong)
I'm not sure if Heavy or Jazz in particular remember what they sttod for, let alone remember the map, but this is our first Thursday throwback! More next week!
